India is a country with many languages. Almost every single state has its own language and there may be regional dialects to each of these languages. This makes out country uniquely multicultural. Each of the citizens of these states also love their states and are proud of their language. They will try to converse in their own language than English or Hindi. It is almost as if they can’t express their true feelings and desires if they aren’t speaking their native language. This creates a sort of separation that between people of different states. Each of them will identify with things differently. Nowadays most people know how to speak more than one language. This is helping with connecting different people of different states, but it’s not enough. With the prevalent use of mobile phones most people have taken to typing out messages.
